Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination is a devastating experience. When you lose employment for illegal reasons, you may even feel you can’t fight it.
But you are not powerless. You can seek justice and hold your former employer accountable starting today. We have the essential details you need to protect your interests below.

What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?

An employer has substantial freedom in hiring or firing. But in some cases, they cross lines that make them liable for compensatory damages.
There are common threads even though employment laws vary from state to state. For example, a company cannot make staffing decisions based on discriminatory reasons. They do not have the right to use aspects of your life like race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation against you. Furthermore, they cannot fire you for taking time off work for medical reasons or retaliate against you for reporting illegal activities.

What Can You Do About Wrongful Termination?

The first step is to schedule a free consultation with a local employment law attorney. They will inform you of your rights and give clear-eyed expectations about what can happen next. Moreover, they have significant resources to gather evidence to support your case.

How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit?

It is vital to act quickly. Most states have a short statute of limitations on how long you have to file a claim. But another critical deadline can pass before you realize it’s too late.
Filing a complaint with the EEOC is an essential step. Their findings make your case far more likely to achieve your goals. Nonetheless, they need to hear from you within 180 days of an incident. You may get up to 300 days, but that is not always applicable.

Do You Have Options Even If Your Employment Is At-Will?

At-will employment is the standard in the United States, but it is not infallible. Federal, state, or local laws forbid certain motives or breaches of contract.
